Parking Report

The Chronicle have commented on the above but again not asked any Conservative for a response.  Here is the article.  They have been happy to use my blog to generate stories in the past without referring to my blog as a source, but not so happy to use it to get my alternative take on these reports.

I have not yet seen the hard copy of the latest edition but I will be interested in whether the previous Borough Council Meeting was covered.

    I wonder if you’ve managed to garner any more information about the msyterious, unlabelled camera (if that is what it is) at the junction of Sparrow Farm Drive and Central Parade? I thought that CCTV cameras have a legal duty to advise road users when these are in use, and to give the name and address of the camera operator (e.g. Metropolitan Police).

    It’s notable that several camera notices have gone up in Feltham now, but I wonder if these are still incorrectly, or inadequately, labelled. They say “Police Enforcement Cameras”. But who is issuing the tickets, and is it a criminal, or de-criminalised “offence” to for instance drop off a passenger at the bus stop in New Road by Feltham Station. There is a very important distinction here, I think. If the council issues the tickets, then “Police Enforcement Cameras” is very misleading, and possibly itself illegal.

    In the case of New Road, wouldn’t it be far better just to provide a proper “kiss and drop” stop here for drivers dropping off passengers for the train or even the bus, who after all are helping to ease congestion on the borough’s roads by travelling by public transport rather than any further in their own car? It’s crazy that in this situation, when nobody else is inconvenienced, somebody could face a fine well in excess of £100.

      Police instigated and I have been informed by one resident that it resulted in one of the best summers for residents for a number of years.
